Recovering drug addict Quincy Gritt has fought his demons. He’s confessed to his crimes and conquered his addictions. He’s finally ready to go after sweet, sexy Roni, the gorgeous brunette who won a date with him in a charity auction five months ago and has been putting him off, and driving him wild, ever since.

Dancer Veronica “Roni” Wescott worked hard to escape the seedy area where she was raised and followed her dreams to Julliard, only to have them shattered in the blink of an eye. She fought hard and regained her footing, but then the rug was pulled out from under her again when the grandmother who raised her passed away, leaving Roni feeling adrift in a world she knows very little about outside of dance. And then there’s Charlie Hunnam–lookalike Quincy Gritt—the man whose late-night texts pulled her through her grief and have been setting her heart aflutter for months.

Quincy pulls out all the stops, determined to prove that their friendship is only the beginning of what’s destined to be so much more. Romantic nights lead to smoldering passion and a deep connection too strong to be denied. But when Quincy’s past comes back to haunt him, can he and Roni accept their new gritty truth, or will Quincy spiral back into the darkness and lose the future he fought so hard to have?


The Whiskeys are perfect beach reads with depth of story, strong family ties, and a wealth of emotions. Small town love stories with happily ever afters guaranteed.

The Gritty Truth by Melissa Foster
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Melissa Foster seems to be hitting all my emotional hot spots lately. The last few books I’ve read by her have been deeply emotional for me because some of the aspects have mirrored my real life. Real life in the present and not the past. Quincy Gritt is someone I know very well. I have to commend Melissa for representing his struggles realistically and respectfully. His struggles will always be lurking in the shadows but as you read his story you will learn the beauty all around him that will help keep those struggles in the shadows. Addiction is not something ones cures or gets over, it’s a disease with no cure, only management options. Roni Wescott is also someone I know well. Actually, I know her intimately because, reasons. Their story was an emotional rollercoaster for me even when it didn’t want to be. That’s just the way the story fell for me and it was all so relatable that while my heart broke for all the things, it sang for them as well and it carried hope for all the things. It was a glorious blend of all the things!

I loved reading the development, or rather journey, between Quincy and Roni mostly because it didn’t miss a step. They began with a strong friendship connection that developed to more, organically and with conviction. Together with the support system they had, they were unstoppable. Their relationship flourished as a slow-burn romance and it was perfection. They just kept building on their foundation with honesty and hope. They were absolutely perfect and their story fit them very well. Well done once again Ms. Foster!
